Pull-A-Part acquires Texas, Arizona parts businesses

Atlanta-based Pull-A-Part, an auto parts company that allows customers to pull their own parts from vehicles, said it acquired U-Pull-It Auto Parts locations in Brownsville, Texas and Tucson, Ariz. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The acquisitions, from Lakeway, Texas-based Johnson Development, give Pull-A-Part 25 used auto parts superstores in 12 states, the company said.

Pull-A-Part said it recycles vehicles in an environmentally responsible way by draining them of fluids and refrigerant, and removing switches that contain mercury, lead-acid batteries and catalytic converters. The mercury, lead and plastic from batteries, and precious metals and stainless steel shells from the catalytic converters are then recycled.

“The two U-Pull-It Auto Parts locations expand the Pull-A-Part footprint and will allow us to help more customers save money and let Pull-A-Part recycle more vehicles in an environmentally responsible way,” President and CEO Ross Kogon said in announcing the acquisitions.
